The Lander Police Department is warning citizens of an internet scam they’ve seen circulating recently in the area.
According to an LPD release, the scam occurs when people are selling items online and the buyer sends them a check for more than the amount of the item. The buyer then asks the seller to send the extra back to them, or to someone else.
Lander Police warn that often times, this is a scam.
